If you can let us know how it went for your wife
As well as we could have hoped for really
its a normal version found in older ladies rather then an aggressive one found in younger
no treatment plan as yet though as they still need the herceptin results back to decide
we know we're not out of the woods yet though and there's still a long way to go
Hi there, I know exactly how you feel. I've just come out of GP with urgent referral because of a big lump I found this week. No reassurance from the GP - it looks bad and I'm terrified. I'm 54 and have a been a complete fool and missed my mammograms. Feeling utterly sick and terrified. Don't know how something like that could
grow so quickly. My husband has private health care so he's on the phone right now trying to see if I can be seen sooner than 2 weeks. I suppose all we can do is wait and get a diagnosis.
What was your diagnosis? I have no lump but the dr said I have thickening after a routine exam (which I couldn't even feel). I have the same ache/burn sensation all under my arm pit/shoulder blade ans even down my arm. This was put down to a trapped nerve in my shoulder 18months ago but obviously now with the breast thickening and the pain still there it's worrying.
I have an appointment in 11 days time under the 2 week rule but worried as have had rhis ache for 18months!
Just wanted to know how you got on?
You’re very lucky that your biopsy was pain free. I get my results on Wednesday, after waiting nearly 3 very long weeks. The biopsy was horribly and the most painful thing ever (out of 8 samples taken I cried out on 2 of them as it hurt so much.) And it took over 40 mins to do it as they were having problems with the equipment.
However, i’ve put that experience behind me - but as the day draws closer I’m getting more and more scared. Finding it very difficult to focus at work. Keeping strong for Wed.
I'm so sorry you had such a painful experience .. funnily enough today, 4 days after I'm getting stabbing pains in my breast but not near to the biopsy area, so I don't know what that can be.
I wish you the very best of luck with your results, mine will be another couple of weeks I think and like you, I'm dreading it but trying to take my mind off of it. Fingers crossed
